Belize Football[edit]

Collapsible lists[edit]

(note: this is in relation to the discussion on the WW2 InfoBox)

As far as I understand (don't take what I say as gospel), there are two main arguments against them:

  • Either the information is worth showing in the display box or not.
  • Technical issues.

No opinion on how valid they are.

ah, that could explain why I couldn't quickly find any examples - they are being phased out!
I had just thought that it seemed like an obvious compromise between Options 1 & 3. I didn't know that it was so obvious that it had been suggested thrice before.
I'm surprised someone bothered to add it as an option. Thanks, Gecko G (talk) 06:49, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Editors Barnstar Hires.png The Editor's Barnstar
You deserve this one. I appreciate you making various improvements on my articles. I also am appreciative of the fact that you have been very diplomatic when it came to the conflicts with other users over various article content. Also, thanks for spelling my name with an É. It gets me all the time. Étienne Dolet (talk) 17:56, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
wow! my first ever barnstar! Face-blush.svg I'm honored. Mahalo nui loa, Étienne! Gecko G (talk) 21:36, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Barring further action by any involved, I consider the matter closed and I look forward to constructive edits from the user in question after the banning period.

Well done[edit]

Well done on bringing Navy Occupation Service Medal up to MILHIST B-Class, I look forward to seeing more of your work! Regards, Peacemaker67 (send... over) 06:28, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Currently, given my lack of time, and lack of wiki-experience, B-class is the highest I dare aim for, but hopefully some day I'll be able to aim higher. Cheers, Gecko G (talk) 21:27, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Dear GeckoG,

I only have read now your question from 6 months ago on the page history. The award you are talking about is the Khalifiyyeh Order of Bahrain, knight's degree. Approved for wear as individual foreign award. Hope I could help! claudevsq (talk) 10:35, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Good eye Claudevsq. Sorry for the delay, I've been off wikipedia for a while. Will comment more on the relevant talk page, cheers

Hey Greg,

Thanks for commenting a while back on my Elliott Fitch Shepard nomination. I'm scared the FAC coordinators will fail it for too little commentary, so would you mind also adding a support or oppose vote either to your old comment(s) or a new one? Thank you!--ɱ (talk · vbm) 19:48, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't know much about the FAC process, but I'll read through the whole article and point out some grammer bits. look for it shortly. Gecko G (talk) 20:31, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

hmm... neat. Didn't know there was such a drive (or contest, or whatever). Thank you. Gecko G (talk) 21:02, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for help[edit]

I would like to say thank you for all the help you did with VAW-125. The page is coming along very well in my opinion. I am still checking more references, but its getting harder and harder. Reb1981 (talk) 03:18, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I've got more work on it in the wings, I've done some research and got more tidbits and some cites that could help it reach B-class, but I just haven't had the time to wikify my notes and add it all. And given that work is heading into the busy season, I think my time crunch will become even more acute over the next 3-4 months. Gecko G (talk) 20:08, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
